SEEDS jADAPTED TO NEW ENGLAND 




What the War Gardens Did 


It is estimated that the war gardens last year numbered over 3,000,000, with a total area of 
over 1,150,000 acres, and it is also estimated that they increased the nation’s food supply to the ex- 
tent of about $350,000,000. These figures are admittedly approximations, for complete and accu- 
rate figures are too much to expect in such a case, but they can be accepted as a reasonable sum- 
mary of what the crusade accomplished. 

What the gardens cost is another story. The main thing is that the use of back yards, vacant 
lots and hitherto untilled tracts near cities and large villages added hundreds of millions of dollars’ 
worth of food supplies to our national supply and to that extent helped us in our great undertak- 
ing of feeding our armies and our allies over the seas. Undoubtedly all these gardens have done 
much to keep down the cost of living. How much cannot be measured, for household expenses 
have been bad enough as it is. Without the gardens it is certain that they would have been worse. 
Moreover, the war gardens have exerted their influence on the cost of living during the past win- 
ter months. The vegetables that were stored away last fall made the food problem look simpler in 
thousands of households. 

Perhaps more important still is the influence of the garden campaign on our national thought 
and habits. Food saving and food conserving have come to mean something that they never meant 
in America before. There will be less waste and a lot more thought of the needs of the future. 
The physical and mental benefit that has resulted to those drawn to wholesome out-of-door work 
during the spring and summer months is a factor not to be ignored. 

There is every reason to believe that the gardens this year and the canning and drying activi- 
ties will be on a larger scale than ever before. Some gardeners failed and are discouraged, but 
many more, and their neighbors with them, have seen what can be done and have learned much 
by experience.

Some Plain Truths About the 1918 Farm Seed 

Situation 


SEED CORN 

SEED CORN condition most serious ever known, almost a national calamity, not halt 
enough to go around. Unprecedented cold weather in October ruined the germination of a 
large percent of the crop in the Northern, Middle and New England States. Such a demand 
for Seed Corn never known before. 

If you need Seed Corn, order at once and we will do our level best to furnish you Seed 
Corn of the highest possible quality and get it to you before planting time. 

Beware of cheap Seed Corn this year. Know what you are buying and be sure you get what 
you buy. 

FIELD BEANS 

FIELD BEANS free from anthracnose and of good germination never so scarce. We have 
less than 500 bushels to offer. v 

Our seed is hand picked, free from rust and was harvested before injured by the frost. 

CANADA FIELD PEAS 

CANADA FIELD PEAS and SOY BEANS in short supply. Our stocks are light but of 
splendid quality. 

SEED OATS 

SEED OATS should' be cheaper this year than last, owing to the big crop, were it not for 
the great world war now raging and the marked shortage of Wheat. Oats are being used for 
human food more than ever before, and only Oats of the best quality are so used. Oats of 
good quality are in very short supply, and we predict Seed Oats will average higher than last 
season. li|1J? , , 

SEED BARLEY 

SEED BARLEY. The 1917 Barley crop is a good one, but the high price of all cereals,' due 
to war conditions, will compel Barley to sell higher than for years. 

SPRING WHEAT 

SPRING WHEAT in heavy demand, have choice stock. Would advise our customers to or- 
der their seed early. Grow your own wheat. 

CLOVER SEED 

CLOVER SEED higher than at any time in the last fifty years. Government Crop Report 
shows only 64% . United States usually imports 75,000 to 100,000 bags, this year none, and 
we are called upon to export 20,000 bags to' England. 

Good crops of ALFALFA and ALSIKE, more reasonable in price and advise sowing freely. 
Our stocks of Alfalfa, northwestern grown, highest possible purity and absolutely hardy. 

TIMOTHY 

TIMOTHY crop also light. Prices very reasonable now but will be higher. 

Do not buy cheap seeds of low purity and lower germination. The best is cheapest. 

SEED POTATOES 

SEED POTATOES will command good prices. Good seed very scarce. Potatoes are being 
used more extensively than ever before in order to save the high-priced foods — Wheat, 
Beans, Beef, Pork, etc. — foods that are easy of export and needed by our troops and Allies in 
the field. Therefore, we believe Potatoes will command high prices throughout the year. 

ORDER EARLY 

GARDEN SEED. We have a good supply of Beet, Carrot, Cabbage, Cucumber, Lettuce, 
Turnip, Peas, Beans, etc. 

ORDER EARLY’. We advise ordering early. Should be pleased to book your order now and 
ship when wanted. 


FOOD WILL WIN THE WAR-PRODUCE IT 



At no time in many years has the importance.jind the necessity o>f the 
home garden heen so great as this year. Our country is lacing a criti- 
cal situation in the matter of food supply, and yet it is one from which 
the individual can get relief, and the remedy is the home garden. 

A small garden, carefully planned and tended will furnish an abun- 
dance of fresh vegetables for the home tabile throughout the summer. 

Do not leave a furrow unturned which might grow a crop, and let 
every acre of land be tilled to its greatest fruitfulness. Don’t hesitate 
to double the size of your gardens, increase your acreage in clovers, gras 
ses and farm crops — be Prepared and you will reap a golden harvest. 

The one sure way to beat the “high cost of living” is to raise your own living. It costs no 
more to make a garden than it always' did. No increase there. The garden will yield as much 
and just as good stuff. 

We want you to get the best results possible and will consider it a great favor to be of ser- 
vice to you. We look forward with pleasure to again filling your orders this season.

“Our Customers Vouch ior Our Seeds” 


Monmouth, Me., Dec. 9, 1916. 
Pine Tree State Seed Co., Batli, Me. 

Closing this the sixteenth year in 'which I 
have relied apon your seeds, I want to express 
my appreciation of the uniform high character 
of the same. In all this time no variety has 
failed to germinate and produce bountifully. To 
the man seeking early crops this means every- 
thing. Sweet Pea, Nasturtium and Pan6y seed 
has also proven of exceptional quality. Among 
the novelties sent the past spring, 1 want to em- 
phasize the superior food value of your Bobo- 
link. bean and Kelway’s Mammoth Ruta Baga. 
Order for 1917 will be sent in early. Wishing 
you merited success. 

G. M. TWITCHELL. 

Col. H. S. Foster of No. Calais, Vt., writes: 

“The seeds received from your house were O. 
K. Ton will get an order from me soon and a 
good sized one.” 

Lowell. Mass. 

“While visiting in Maine last summer I had 
several bouquets brought to me, and the Powers 
were so beautiful and different trom any 1 had 
ever seen, 1 had to ask where the seeds were 
bought, aud your addrss was given me. if you 
have a catalog please send me a copy.” 

Mrs. C. C. BERRY. 

Middlesex, Vt. 

“Received the seeds all right and am very 
much obliged for tbe very generous amount of 
complimentary packages.” 

J. A. CHAPIN. 

Mr. E. H. Libby, Secretary of the Maine State 
Grange, writes as follows: 

“The flower seeds received from you last 
spring were very fine and my wife was very 
much pleased' with them. No one makes a mis- 
take in buying your seeds.” 

“The seeds came all right. We never had so 
many in a package before. They are bright 
looking seed, shall surely recommend them 
whenever we have an opportunity.” 

Randolph, Vt. GEO. C. FLINT. 

Bowdoinham, Maine, Dec. 2, 1916. 
Wa planted about 6 acres of the Ruta Baga tur- 
nips with your seed last spring. We had a hard 
taslue to keep the weeds down and out. Put a 
good deal of time into this work with the result 
that we got about 2000 bushels for sale and 500 
bu. for sheep stock. 

The seed that we had from you gave us some 
handsome stock, hard, yellow, sweet and of high 
quality. They bring a handsome price in the 
market. We shall want some more next spring. 

Yours truly, 

W. B. KBNDA1LL, Manager, 

Sagadahoc Fertilizer Co.

I want to thank you for seed that is worth 
the planting. I had a lot from the Government 
last year, but give me Pine Tree State seed every 
time. C. W. EMERY.

Your Catalog is very interesting. Wish you 
•would send me some for distribution In the

Novelties and Specialties For 1918 

This melon has been grown by Mr. Metcalf of 
Cumberland County for over twenty years, of 
whom we secured a small supply of seed. 

The following is his description: 

‘‘More than 2 0 years ago, a horticultural 
friend told me he had been talking with a man 
Interested in gardening who told him of a su- 
perior variety of Musk Melon he was growing. 
Soon after he gave him a few of the’seeds, these 
he divided with me. We both planted them the 
next season with good success. After they had 
ripened I called at the home of my friend one 
evening. When he brought in a nice looking 
Melon and opened it, as he did so, its fine ap- 
pearance and delightful odor caused him to ex- 
claim: ‘Ah! That’s worth a thousand dollars.’ 
Since then it has been known as the Thousand 
Dollar Melon. I have continued to plant this 
variety every year since, saving seeds from the 
best and first to ripen each year and know of no 
other variety any better or will ripen as early.” 

The Melons average two to six pounds. 


Price per packet 10c; three for 25c; oz. 35c.

Contented cows always give more 
and better milk than nervous and ir- 
ritable cows — and nothing so quick- 
ly affects a cow’s disposition as sore 
or injured teats. For sore, chapped 
or injured teats nothing is so good 
as BAG BALM, the great healing 
ointment, in the big 50c package. 

BAG BALM is also a quick cure 
for caked or swollen udder, and for 
Bunches, Stricture, or any cut or 
bruise. Keep it on hand constantly ; 
it keeps little hurts from getting big. 


BAG BALM is sold in large 50c pack- 
ages by feed dealers and druggists.
